Starting October 13, Texas voters can show off their iconic “I Voted” stickers for either a discount, freebie, or treat from local restaurants and cafes in Austin. The bipartisan campaign hashtagged #pollperks is aimed at proud voters wearing their stickers and celebrates those who choose to exercise their civic duties over the next two weeks.
Voters are encouraged to take a photo of their “I Voted” sticker, a photo of their goodie, and use the hashtag #PollPerks. All participating businesses are voluntarily taking part to help their staff and the community at large during a particularly hard time for our restaurants and shops, so #pollperks also asks Austinites and San Antoninians to show up and show out for their local businesses. Additionally, Austinites and San Antonians are encouraged to redeem only one offer.
Participating businesses are listed below and require patrons to present their “I Voted’ sticker. One discount, treat or freebie per voter at each participating business. Please visit www.pollperks.com/ for the full list and updated offerings.
